Rosser Lunsford (Poet Laureate Putnam County) Old Homeplace The old homeplace is all but gone, The smokehouse logs are rotten, The old well is drying stone And most drinkers long forgotten. The oak and elm stand looking down On a place once much dearer, Years have left neglected ground And ruins of a passing era. Building A Home Houses are built by women and men wherever they may roam, but only the love that dwells within can build for them a home... and from the beginning to the end only love can keep it strong.

When the Braves first came to Atlanta our family of six would go up several times each summer to a base- ball game. We could leave at 5 p.m., eat supper at the Varsity, and go to the game all for ten dollars including 28 cents a gallon for gas. We can't expect this thirty years later, but the prices charged today are too much out of line. This same trip today would cost two hundred dol- lars, twenty times as much. Advertising products who spon- sor radio, television, and newspaper ads also must take their share of the Most people I know reacted with indifference when the owners and the players reached an agreement last week to play a shortened 50 game season beginning in February. This lockout no doubt will hurt attendance and interest in pro basket- ball, but it will not matter financially to either because most pro owners are already multimillionaires and the players are not far behind. I really blame the owners for the high salaries more than I do the play- ers. The owners have added the sal- ary increases plus a hefty increase for themselves to the price of tickets. This way the owners could make themselves look like innocent vic- tims of wage demands by the selfish players. ]anuary i9th Birthday q )f Robert E.

General Robcrtibr Lee died there on October 12 I i' ' " ' " ,4 rlOI Lee is now remembered as tltC g; By Terry Rumph The first birthday on January 19th, legislated as a legal holiday in the State of Georgia, was that of Robert E. Lee. Robert Edward Lee was born Janu- ary 19, 1807 in Stratford, Virginia. ,Educated at the US Military Acad- emy and finishing second in his class in 1829, he received a commission as second lieutenant in the engineers. tie became first lieutenant in 1836 and captain in 1838. He became fa- mous during the Mexican War and was wounded in the storming of Chapuitepec in 1847. He became Superintendent of the US Mililary Academy and later was appointed colonel of cavalry. When the War of Northern Ag- gression/War for Southern Indepen- dence seemed unavoidable, President Lincoln offered him the field com- mand of the Union forces, but Lee declined. On April 20, 1861, three days after Virginia seceded from the thiion, lie subinilled his resignation from the US Army. On April 23rd lie became Commander in Chief of the military forces of Virginia. He was military advisor to President Jeffer- son Davis for over a year and then was placed in command of the Army of Northern Virginia. In February 1865 Lee was appoinled Commander in Chief of all Confederate armies; two months later the war was over after his surrender at Appomattox Court House. His great battles included Sh,'u'ps- burg, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, Chanceilorsviile and others. The ge- nius of Lee was overcome only by the superior resources and troop strength of the Union. His campaigns are all to this day studied worldwide in mili- tary schools as models of strategy and laclics, ltis abilily to anlicipale the actions of his opponents and for comprehending their weak,esses was remarkable. He recognized thai a small body of soldiers, prolecled by enlrenchmenls, can hold an enemy force of many Iinies their nunlher, while Ihe main body oulflanks Ihe enemy or allacks a smaller force else- where. In his applicalion of this prin- ciple, Lee was decades ahead of his lime: this taclic was nol fully undcr- sR#od or generally adopled unlil Ili0 20th cenlury. General Lee applied for but was never gmnled poslwar amnesty. He accepted the presidency of Washing- est leader this country'hts cve I.
